The Walker

Richard Graham was commissioned to produce a sculpture symbolising walkers using the Coleridge way. Its purpose is to promote Lynmouth's role as Exmoor's premier walking centre - passers by are encouraged to be photographed shaking his hand. "The Walker" has been installed where the Coleridge Way, Two Moors Way, South West Coast Path and Tarka Trail meet opposite the Pavilion on Lynmouth Waterfront. It was unveiled in May 2017 by John Craven of the BBC's Countryfile.
